"It is with great pleasure I share my thoughts on the team at Waimak Classic Cars. It is a rare moment in a person’s life when they can honestly say that someone has gone above and beyond what was expected of them. What a journey it has been to take possession of my beloved 1959 Sunbeam Alpine. From the get-go, Jesmond and Gloria have been truly professional, honest, trustworthy and honorable. They have not only delivered a beautiful car that runs like a dream but have renewed my faith in humanity. It was Jesmond who encouraged me to fly down and view the car, spending an entire day answering my multitude of questions as I gradually gathered the information I needed to be confident about the purchase. There was never any hint of pressure, only gentle assurance that Waimak’s ethos and excellent reputation was a complete reflection of the team’s long-held passion for high quality classic cars. In the background, Gloria efficiently set up the transportation logistics-her emails always prompt, positive and clear. Then what an absolute joy to finally receive the car in mint condition, start it up, and take it on the ultimate road trip-530kms across the Southern Alps under cloudless blue skies. I felt like the luckiest man alive! I would recommend Waimak to anyone who is considering a classic car purchase. You will be in the best and safest hands possible."Stewart, Auckland, New Zealand
In 1979, some things just got better - take this Volkswagen Super Beetle for example.
These cars were built to take it. Its wheels are independently suspended. Comes with coil spring / shock absorbers up front - a clever piece of engineering, that gives you an amazingly smooth, comfortably quiet ride - even on rough terrain. In the back is a double jointed rare axle, that keeps the drive wheels flat on the road to give you more control over the car. Also comes with a long lasting engine made out of the same stuff Porsche uses to make its race car engines - lightweight magnesium alloy. So there you have it, she's a pretty tough car to shake loose.
